I don’t eat with screens on

I forget it I posted this sidcha, though it’s not that challenging, at least not any more, though it was when I started it in January 2022. At first kicking the addiction was hard.

Maybe it’s more of a habit. It’s not a restriction though it may seem that way if you haven’t lived it.

The sidcha: I don’t eat when a screen is on. Or when I eat, I turn off all the screens I can see.

I haven’t started avoiding sounds, so I’ll listen to my phone or computer play an audiobook, music, or a podcast. If I want to check something quickly, I’ll stop eating, check my email, and start eating again after turning the screen back off.

I can’t put into words the benefits of this sidcha. Food tastes better. I pay attention to what I’m watching better when I watch. I save time by not trying to do two things at once.

I recommend it.
